Candy Dulfer

Grammy nominated Dutch saxophonist and vocalist Candy Dulfer has been performing since age seven, leader of the band Funky Stuff since age fourteen, an international recording artist since age nineteen, and has toured world-wide since age twenty.

Dulfer has recorded and / or performed with numerous noted artists such as Prince, Dave Stewart (Eurythmics), Van Morrison, Maceo Parker, Beyoncé, Pink Floyd, Chaka Khan, David Sanborn, Larry Graham, Aretha Franklin, Jimmy Cliff, George Duke, Blondie, Jools Holland, Jamie Cullum, Angie Stone, Tower of Power, The Time, Alan Parsons, Fred Wesley, Pee Wee Ellis, Joey DeFrancesco, Jonathan Butler, Mavis Staples, and the list goes on and on. Perhaps just as impressive is the thought that even jazz sax legend Sonny Rollins may be counted among Candy's fans and has commented favorably upon her work.

In 1989 “Lily was here” - her first collaboration with former Eurythmics member Dave Stewart - was a Number 1 hit all over Europe. In 1999 they worked together on the soundtrack of the Robert Altman motion picture Cookie's Fortune and in 2002 they toured Europe with Stewart's new project Da Univerzal Playaz, featuring reggae legend Jimmy Cliff.

Candy Dulfer's solo debut album Saxuality (Arista, 1991) sold over a million copies worldwide and was nominated for a Grammy. Her fourth album For the love of you (1997) was a major hit in the USA and remained in the Billboard charts for more than forty weeks. Sales of Dulfer's solo albums now total well into the millions worldwide.
